Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2091 after 19 days on 27 September 2091 at 15:56.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1133 of Meeus index or 2086 from Brown series.
Length of current 1133 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1134 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
5 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2091 at 01:49 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 September 2091 at 01:40 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 390 703 km (242 772 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 131 km (224 396 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 28 August 2091 at 18:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2091 at 03:32 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 00:27 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.885°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.923° in its southern standstill point on 20 September 2091 at 16:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 13 September 2091 at 09:34 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
